AutoCAD Stretch

The Stretch command in AutoCAD is used to stretch the portion of the object partially enclosed by the polygon selection or window selection.

The objects selected individually or completely enclosed by the window selection cannot be stretched. Those objects are rather moved such as ellipses, blocks, and circles.

Let's understand by two examples.

Example 1:

Consider the below image:

AutoCAD Stretch

The steps for such an example are listed below:

  1. Select Stretch icon from the ribbon panel, as shown below:
    AutoCAD Stretch
    Or
    Type S or stretch on the command line or command prompt and press Enter.
  2. Select the object. We have selected the object with the help of box selection, as shown below:
    AutoCAD Stretch
  3. Press Enter.
  4. Specify the base point or displacement value.
    We can also specify the displacement value in coordinates (X, Y, Z format).
    Here, we have specified the base point, as shown below:
    AutoCAD Stretch
  5. Specify second point or the displacement value. If we specify the second point, as shown below:
    AutoCAD Stretch
    The base point was the original base point of the object and the second point is the stretched base point of that object.
    Let us specify the displacement value = 6, 7. The object will now look like the below image:
    AutoCAD Stretch

Example 2:

Consider the below image:

AutoCAD Stretch

The steps for such an example are listed below:

  1. Select Stretch icon from the ribbon panel
    Or
    Type S or stretch on the command line or command prompt and press Enter.
  2. Select the object. Here, we have selected a portion, as shown below:
    AutoCAD Stretch
  3. Press Enter.
  4. Specify the base point or displacement value.
    Here, we have specified the base point, as shown below:
    AutoCAD Stretch
  5. Specify second point or the displacement value.
    We have specified the second point, as shown below:
    AutoCAD Stretch
    The base point was the original base point of the object and the second point is the stretched base point of that object.
    We can also stretch it by specifying the displacement value according to the requirements.
